When Was The Last Time You Thought You Could Change The World?
Maybe You Never Thought You Could.
You'd Be Wrong.
The social object for the burning cool movement
WE CAN THINK OF BURNING COOL AS A FORM OF ENERGY - OF DOING AND MAKING THINGS HAPPEN.
So, where do you start? Take a reasoned approach to your journey.
One person can change the world. Not you? That's OK.
One person can change his community. Not you? That's OK.
One person can change her family. Not you? That's OK.
One person can change himself or herself. Yes...You.
Start somewhere. Someone will follow.
BE DARING. BE AN INSPIRATION
- Be a more engaging, interesting and participating you.
- Give a constant volley of positive shout-outs on social media about your family, friends, peers.
- Choose carefully where you spend your social, virtual and actual currency. Your support means you approve of things that are being said and sold.
- Use your influence to create the change you want.
- Dream big. Be unrealistic.
THE STORY BEHIND THE BRACELETS
The story of the bracelets is absolutely fantastic and is the reason we have chosen this particular symbol for Burning Cool. The recycled rubber bracelets are made by a Women’s Co-operative in Djenné, Mali, West Africa. Paid a fair price for their work these bracelets provide the women with a viable means of support and are sold to raise funds for L'Empire des Enfants.
Coldplay's Chris Martin wears the bracelet in support of the Women's Co-operative - Burning Cool!

Leah Oliver is the Sports Medicine Teacher and Athletic Trainer at Mountain View High School in Tuscon, Arizona. She's also the first woman to be indicted into the Arizona Athletic Trainers Association hall of Fame, the highest award in the state. But it's not the awards that make her Burning Cool. Leah is absolutely 100% committed to making her students the best they can be. She works tirelessly mentoring and motivating her students to pursue their interests and dreams. She is constantly zinging the "ing". Her verbs? Doing, participating, mentoring, laughing, supporting, experiencing and living her passion. Thanks for Burning Cool, Leah!
